Garden Seed Gift Package Tutorial

Photo 1.)
Flower seed packages, Paper bags, Bone folder, Liquid Pearls by Ranger, Ruler, Glue, decorative border punch (here Stampin Up), Cardstock Bazzill, Designer Paper, Bone Folder, Paper Trimmer, Stamped Images, Crop-A-Dile
Unfold the bottom part of your paper bags and se your bone folder to align the ends evenly up. On the sample I did this with 2 bags – you can use as many as you like. You will create per bag 2 pockets for garden seed packages.
Glue bags together. Do not apply glue all the way to the top to the bags

Use your seed package to determine where to cut excess of bag off. Remember to leave some extra space for the design of your border punch. I cut my bag to length 5.5 inches / 14 cm
Click on picture to enlarge - so you can read the measurements on my bagUse the border punch and punch along the top of the bag decorative edge. (No more than one bag at a time

Measure your bags and cut cardstock and patterned to decorate the front and the back of the bag.

Color in your stamped images and decorate your gift bag as desired with flowers, ribbons and images.
Have fun getting creative for Spring!

Many woman create, but it takes a special woman to not only share her art with others but to teach it. Thank you for being one of those. This lesson is wonderful and makes it easy for anyone to make a seed bag - although mine would not have the coloring perfection! Hugs
